THE FIRST NOËL
• Brown wrapping paper • Sticky tape • Scissors • Burlap • Twine • Holly leaf garland • White cardboard • Pen
Note: this works best on smaller presents.
1. Wrap the present in brown paper, then loop a piece of burlap around it and secure it at the back with sticky tape. Pop some twine around the pressie, running the opposite direction to the burlap so they make a cross shape.
2. Take one end of the garland and start measuring out a circle wreath shape on the top of your gift. When you’re happy with it, tape down small sections (where there are no leaves) to secure it. Don’t tape down too much of your wreath – you want it to look realistic.
3. To finish, cut a thin strip of cardboard, then cut two small, even triangles out of each end and fold at each end to create a name card.
